Global Helium Market 2016-2020

Global Helium Market 2016-2020

About Helium

Helium is the second most abundant element in the universe after hydrogen, but is still relatively sparse on earth. Helium is usually extracted along with natural gas, wherein the concentration of the former varies between .03%-0.80%. Gas fields with less than 0.1% concentration are often termed as poor reserves. Some fields in Russia and Siberia are said to have helium reserves in concentrations up to 0.8%.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global market for helium to grow at a CAGR of 8.52% during the period 2016-2020.
